Government Stimulus Payments Update

The government has begun to deposit economic stimulus payments to those with direct deposit set up with the IRS. The process of issuing payments will take several weeks and people will receive them at varying times. Those with direct deposit will receive funds first.

You may visit the IRS FAQ page  for the most up-to-date answers to your questions, including:

  • Will I get a payment?
  • How much will my payment be?
  • How and when will I receive it?
  • Do I need to do anything to get it?

If you are worried about whether you or your family have the right legal documents in place in a health emergency or sudden death, contact one of our estate planners.  They are available to answer your questions about wills, trusts and powers of attorney during this time of uncertainty.

We’re working, available, and ready to help.

Elder Law Vlog

In this video, Attorney Gene Richards speaks about a free resource you can use to put a will or medical power of attorney in place without the use of an attorney in an emergency situation. In an emergency, it is better to have something in writing than nothing. It’s always best to work with an attorney for your legal documents, and you should not copy documents from the Internet or try to draft them yourself. In a pinch, however, Mr. Richard’s recommends a Michigan resource that includes a statutory Will, medical POA and for organ donation. These documents, which have been vetted by attorneys and approved by the state legislature, can be found be clicking here.
